Ohio Post Secondary Enrollment Option (OPSEO): Qualifying secondary school students in Ohio have the option of taking college courses for high school or college credit OR both high school and college credit. The OPSEO provides ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students with an opportunity to take classes at eligible post-secondary institutions. The purpose of the program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wider variety of options to high school students. If you are interested in this program, you will need to contact the guidance counselor before the March 30 deadline.
A student may apply for early graduation, but must do so by April of his or her sophomore year, maintain a 2.0 GPA, meet with the guidance counselor and follow all guidelines available in the Guidance Office.
Juniors and Seniors may attend Vantage Vocational School and still receive a St. John's diploma if they meet the requirements for both schools, including taking a supplemental religion course at St. John's.
Students must meet all academic, financial and disciplinary obligations and requirements of St. John's before receiving a grade card, transcript, or diploma.
